It all started…

when an evil, three-eyed monster with the breathe of a toad and the letters I-R-S branded across its chest came hurdling toward Chris…ok, maybe our story didn’t begin quite that way.

Meet our team

Chris Wells


Chris has been in practice since 2006. He has done a little bit of everything, with one constant being taxes. Providing tax assistance and planning to individuals, trusts and businesses is a culmination of all of his accounting experience. His audit and litigation background provide a strong understanding of generally accepted accounting principles, as well as forming a strong ethical standard in regards to his work. He has a strong understanding of current tax laws, and stays up to date on any pending changes, because no one likes surprises when it comes to taxes.

No cool nickname here, Chris is a self described geek who happens to love all sports. He is as comfortable engaging in argument with his children about who is the most powerful Avenger, as he is debating why Magic Johnson is the greatest Laker or that Kershaw’s mismanagement is the main cause for his disastrous post-seasons.

Beyond your tax code and business needs, Chris does know the secret to life, the universe and everything. Hint it is 42. Also that, the bravest man to ever play any sport, Jackie Robinson, wore 42 for his beloved Dodgers.

Lastly, none of this would be possible without the support of his fantastic wife.

Brenda Gomez, Associate at Tax 42

Brenda Gomez


Brenda “La Sonrisa”, has been the one constant for many of you through the various ownership transitions. She has been assisting people with tax preparation since 2014. In addition to being fluent in the tax code, Brenda is fluent in Spanish and is here to assist all our Spanish speaking clientele. She is almost as fast with an answer as she is with a smile. If you are looking for someone to make filing your taxes easy and somewhat enjoyable she is the one.

Brenda leads a quiet life filled with paragliding and cliff jumping. Just kidding, it would be awesome though wouldn’t it.

In reality, Brenda spends her off-time engaged in her community. She volunteers with her church and is always looking for a way to make someone’s day better.

She is also an avid Dodger fan, so please keep that in mind when scheduling your appointments.
